Men can be notoriously difficult to buy for, and finding that perfect gift for Valentine’s Day can be a real headache. If you are struggling to think of something special for the notable man in your life, here are a few ideas that might help you out.
February 14th sees the return of the annual ‘love-in’ that is Valentine’s Day; a day that couples will look forward to and dread in equal measure. Sure the first few are easy, think flowers, chocolate and smoochy teddy bears. But for established couples it isn’t so easy, and for that special guy doubly so.
What on earth do you buy men on Valentine’s Day? Guys are just not as sentimental as women, and many wouldn’t choose to mark the day if given a choice. But that would be a real shame, especially when there is so much doom and gloom about. A bit of romance can go a long way! So look beyond socks and cufflinks, so that blokes everywhere don’t get left disappointed on Valentine’s Day.
Here are a few blokey gift ideas to help you out.
Tabasco Chocolate Tin
Ok so chocolate is hardly original, but there is no getting away from the fact that it is a well-known aphrodisiac. But it needn’t be boring; the chocolate in this tin has been made with heat-seekers in mind, with a few drops of tasty Tabasco sauce dripped tantalisingly into the mixture. Spice up your love life for only £4.95 at Prezzybox.
Using hand weights can increase flexibility, build muscle mass, and help lose weight. So as a subtle way of suggesting your guy needs to tone up a little, these weights that range from £3 through to £13 could be a perfect solution. Far less bulky than regular weights, which makes them usable for you too (obviously when he isn’t looking). Available from John Lewis.
If you want to push the boat out a little further, why not consider an experience that will live long in the memory. From rugged 4x4s and Hummers to sleek supercars, there is nothing quite like taking out your stresses on the track. And for added romance, share the experience and make a bet on who will perform best. (The punishment will be up to you to decide!) From Under £20 at Virgin Experience Days.
Whilst socks may definitely not be on the romantic list, the same cannot be said for underwear in general. After all, what is good for him in the pants department is also good for you! So a gift of some designer boxers would be a win win solution. For a huge selection be sure to check out Figleaves.
Scanner for ipad
The DOCS2GO Scanner for iPad is a sleek, portable scanner for documents, photos and more. And whilst on the more expensive side at £149.99, just imagine all the favours he will owe you in return. Plus think of the fun you can have creating saucy valentines memories (although be sure not to leave them lying about) Order today from Firebox.
Remote Control Cushion
If your fella is a bit of a couch potato (pretty much all of us) then what could make a better gift than a novelty Remote Control Cushion. Losing the remote will never be a problem again, as it will be behind you. The cushion uses LED infra-red technology, and is universally compatible with TVs. Throwing a cushion at a loved one takes on a whole new dimension. Yours for £19.99 at Menkind.
Ladies Football Kit
Whilst it may strictly be a gift for you, it will certainly be a gift for him as you dress up in his beloved team colours. It may be a cliché, but it still remains a potent one for footle obsessed guys up and down the country. Who knows, it might even be enough to distract him on a Saturday afternoon! Find a large choice of ladies football kits at Kitbag.
